Leukemia Home > Leukemia Types
Part of making a diagnosis of leukemia involves determining the type. First of all, the disease is classified as either acute or chronic; then the specific kind of leukemia is identified. The different types include:
- Lymphocytic leukemia
- Myeloid leukemia
- Hairy cell leukemia.
There are also subtypes among these varieties. These kinds of leukemia have different symptoms and progress differently.
